    You do realize it's a lot more expensive generally to kill someone than to let them rot in prison, right?

    Thanks for providing a link. Hadn't paid any attention to this trial at all. Knowing now that he tried the "pr0n made me do it" defense makes me feel like I missed out.

    It may be more expensive but in situations like this, my belief is that you shoot that mofo straight between the eyes. Or I guess leathal injection if that is too harsh.

    My feelings exactly. Could be done much cheaper.

    A firing squad is a lot less expensive than letting him rot in prison. Unfortunately that is viewed as inhumane. Never mind the fact that how he treated those women for however many years it was is far less humane than putting him in front of a firing squad ever would be...

    Its not that the execution itself is more expensive, its that the legal process for those on death row is so much more time-consuming (and thus expensive) that it ends up costing much more. The guy's already 53, he'd probably be in his mid 60s before we executed him anyways given the average time it takes.

    Prison is a bad place for sexual predators, especially with child victims. I'm sure he'll spend his time in solitary hell or get killed in prison.

    If we just stopped worrying about possibly killing innocent people and do away with the appeals process we could just shoot them in the courtroom after the guilty verdict is read! It'd be stupid but we could sure do it.

    I'm guessing this guy will not have fun in prison, either solitary or murdered.
